Comfortably carry everything you need for work or school in this 17.3in Backpack from Made by Design™. This gray backpack has a drawstring closure that lets the size of the opening adjust to fit various sized items, while adjustable straps let you customize how it feels on your back. With designated pockets for your laptop, tablet and phone, as well as two more pockets for added organization, you can be sure there's a spot for all your essentials.
I really enjoy the simplicity of this bag with its minimal exterior. As a subway commuter I don't want a lot of exposed pockets or zippers that someone can get into. I used to have a zippered bag and was apprehensive about the drawstring access on this bag, but now I love it - I can easily store way more with the expandable storage, especially extra sweaters or hats and gloves in the winter. I don't find the shoulder straps as comfortable as my last bag, and my last bag also had a stiffer surface on the back side, which I preferred.
The drawstring is convenient. It really does make it easier to fit a variety of items. I like that the side pockets can easily fit water bottles, but they aren't mesh so it doesn't look sporty. It's relatively small and unobtrusive considering how much it can contain. The material both inside and out is easy to clean. It's a simple design, so I can wear it work as a commuter bag and it doesn't look bad with my work attire. It's an inexpensive balance between form and function.
The bag is ok, I love the look of it but the functionality isn't the greatest. It takes too much effort to get into the main compartment, especially for me being an amputee. It also is a bit on the small size and I like a travel bag to be as big as possible but still fit within the airline bag limits!
The worst thing I can say about this is it's grey (not big into neutrals). The padding is very nice and comfortable and the straps are adjustable. There are multiple pockets inside of varying sizes as well as a main compartment and a laptop pocket. The laptoo pocket is roomy enough for my 15" laptop and even has an elastic velcro flap to hold it in place. There's a mesh zipper pocket on top for gym shirt and socks. There's 2 pockets on the side with elastic at the top for water bottle, etc and a good size zipper pocket on the front. Oh, and the top closes with drawstring and a Co er with clasp for extras security Really like this and I didn't even think I would!
